A Bit Better Farm moved to it’s current Brookeville, Maryland location in late 2005. Much of the farm is historic, with the farm house being built in 1801. The property backs up to Rachel Carson Conservation Park with lots of trails for hacking. Being typical horse people, the ABBF family decided to renovate the barns first and then worry about the houses later!
There are currently 23 stalls spread out among four barns. The 72′ x 150′ indoor arena has new footing, and an 80′ x 180′ outdoor arena was recently added. The horses rotate through several pastures spread out over 32 acres. By keeping the ABBF herd to about 20 horses, each horse is guaranteed individualized care and attention.
Now that the horses are happy in their new digs, the ABBF family has turned their attention to their own living quarters. The main farmhouse has been completely renovated into a house for Kelley, Danny, Jona and Tate, and an “in-law” suite for Pat and Ray … and a house for Kim, Boni, Tyler and Grace has been constructed across the driveway. ABBF truly is a family affair!
